Two people, including a Smithsburg woman, were taken to the hospital after a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of Main and Water streets in Smithsburg on Thursday morning, Deputy 1st Class Carly Hose, Public Information Officer for the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, said.
Hose said that Leah Nicole Davis, 18, of Smithsburg, was driving a Mitsubishi west on Water Street when the vehicle ran a red light at the intersection.
The Mitsubishi collided with a Honda Pilot that was being driven northbound by Teresa Anne Stoner, 46, of Greencastle, Pa., Hose said.
The collision caused the Pilot to overturn.
“It took out a light pole,” Hose said.
Each vehicle was occupied only by a driver, and both were taken to Meritus Medical Center to be treated for non life-threatening injuries, Hose said.
“Both drivers were conscious,” Hose said.
Police responded to the accident shortly before 8 a.m. Thursday and blocked off the intersection. It reopened around 8:40 a.m. after the Mitsubishi was towed away.
The conditions of Davis and Stoner were not immediately available.
